Commonly known as Sydney Blue Gum, this beautiful red timber has a fantastic grain. It is also easy to work, dress and fix. It responds well to most finishes and takes a good polish, making it popular for decorative applications where moderate durability is required.

Our commitment to sustainability

Coffs Harbour Hardwoods understands that in an ever changing world that it is important to develop and evolve into a business that accepts that its environmental footprint should be kept to a minimum on our landscape. We are committed to sustainable forestry management and have had a long heritage of not only living and working in the forests of the NSW North Coast but also a practical understanding and love of the bush that inspires a desire to use its resources wisely. Sustainable Forest management (ie not harvesting faster than the forest can regrow and not destroying its ability to maintain its productive capacity) allows the environmental and economic value of the forests to be sustained indefinitely.

As well as giving desirable environmental and altruistic outcomes, sustainable forest management is good for Coffs Harbour Hardwoods as it allows a continuing forest resource that the company needs for the sought-after products it produces.

Timber and forests are a unique resource in that (unlike the extractive industries and other building materials) timber harvested sustainably will replenish itself and provide significant environmental and aesthetic benefits while it is replenishing. Sustainable forest management can provide society with definite benefits at the same time as providing resources for the timber industry.

Industry and governments seek to ensure that Sustainable Forest Management is achieved by various means including regulations, certification schemes, and codes of practice.

Logs & poles used in producing CHH products are sourced from either:

  • Private property forests that have been harvested under the NSW Code of Practice for Private Native Forestry controlled by NSW Dept of Environment & Climate Change.
  • Forestry Commission of NSW t/as Forests NSW which is certified under the Australian Forest Certification Scheme (AFCS Cert No 13761).

Both the above sources use recognised protocols for ensuring timber supplies are from native timber resources that are legally and sustainably managed.

Further Information

For generations we’ve provided Australia and surrounding countries with the finest quality hardwood to suit all different aspects of building and construction. We’ve won numerous awards and our brand is synonymous for quality.

Coffs Harbour Hardwoods can deliver your timber within the Coffs Coast area. Our trucks are equipped with a crane to unload our beautiful, natural hardwood.

If you would like your timber delivered, we do have to limit where we can deliver due to safety concerns. Please communicate any difficulty with tight roads, steep hills and changes in usual conditions due to inclement weather to our sales team when ordering to enable your timber to be delivered in a careful and safe manner.

Delivery is to kerbside only.

For our wholesale market we can arrange transport interstate where required.

When building in bushfire prone areas it is important to follow the correct guidelines and design methods. A range of prevention strategies has been developed, aimed at diminishing the risk of ember, radiant heat and even flame damage. The Standard sets guidelines for assessing which of six bushfire attack levels (BAL) a site falls into (BAL: LOW, 12.5,19, 29, 40 and FZ) and then specifies additional construction requirements for houses in the more bushfire-prone areas. The goal is to reduce the risk of fire and ember penetration. Fortunately, Australia has several high-density timbers that provide inherent natural bushfire resistance. The seven bushfire-resisting timbers specified in the AS 3959-2009 are tough, dense hardwoods that performed well in extensive fire testing.

These species may be used up to and including a BAL 29 rating.
Blackbutt, Merbau, Red Ironbark, River Red Gum, Silvertop Ash, Spotted Gum, Turpentine.

Other species that we offer may be used up to BAL 19 but please consult with professional advice before selecting the species you wish to use in your locality.
